    Default Favorite mechanical wingers

    Just curious to see what everybody's preferred winger was, and why?

    I LOVE my Mini Z's from Zinger Winger. They are well built, light weight, and always seem to work. I use them with TT electronics. They can fling a bird a pretty far too. I also have a couple BB 4 shooters with new electronics and love those too.

    That being said, you will have all kinds of responses on here since there are multiple manufacturers so get ready. Kind of opening a can of worms on this one lol

    I have had my three GU SOG's for five years with no problems, and they throw a nice bird also!

    Another vote for Zinger Winger! I have 2 ZW II's with TT electronics and am very happy with them. Lightweight, easy to set up, throws a great bird. Had them for 7 troublefree years.

    Zinger Mini Z's for me personally. Small but throw a very nice bird.

    Gunners Up! I use them daily and sell them to a lot of folks on here as well. Richard Davis supports the HRC Grand as an Official Sponsor by providing products and on site support. In fact, Jerry Davis, is personally delivering the wingers for the Fall Grand in Oklahoma this week and will be there to make sure all goes well! Great folks and a great product. - Brian

    Gunner's Up regular sized wingers. Sturdy, tough, and fold up nice and flat for storage and transport.

    I have both Mini Z's and Gunners up and I prefer the throw from the Mini Z's.
